What is SNOCAP?

SNOCAP stands for State Networks of Ambulatory Practices and Partners. SNOCAP is the overarching name for the collaborative affiliation of practice-based research networks in Colorado that joined together to improve communication, facilitate joint research projects, and share research staff and resources.

Because of the variation in size, location, populations served, and organizational structure, research conducted across SNOCAP is more generalizable than that conducted in more uniform Practice-Based Research Networks (PBRNs) elsewhere.

We are leading the charge for healthier communities.

Community Engagement Forum

The ACCORDS Education Program and Community Engagement Core and the CCTSI Community Engagement Core have partnered to offer a forum for investigators and study teams conducting community/stakeholder-engaged research. 

These forum will run quarterly and include brief seminars from leading engagement scholars and community research partners. Additionally, this will serve as a learning community for sharing best practices and lessons learned. The forum will be geared towards supporting investigators and study teams throughout design, conduct, and dissemination of engaged research.
